- “I wish I could go to the beach.”
- My grieving co-worker’s words were an answer to my prayer. I’d been asking God to show me how to encourage her in a special way after her recent loss of her mother. When I overheard her conversation with another co-worker I knew “The Beach” was God’s directive.
- Later that day, I stopped by a discount store in search of anything beachy. To my surprise I found several inexpensive items and added more from my gift closet (extra gifts I buy on sale and keep for occasions when I need them) I added her favorite snacks and beverage to the cart.
- The next morning I arrived early to work and left her bucket filled with her “Beach Bucket Surprise” on her desk with an anonymous card which read: Enjoy a day at the beach!
- Although she never found out it was me who left the gift, I know my surprise brought her hope. (and still does) A few days later, I saw her sitting at her desk, smiling and looking at something on her desk. As I walked by, I saw it: A picture of the beach and a seashell.
